Humana Inc. : Humana to Offer Medicare Prescription Drug, Health Plans at Select Walgreens in Florida

11/09/2012 | 05:57pm US/Eastern

Humana Medicare reps to staff 100 Florida locations during Medicare enrollment period

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of Florida's leading health care companies with nearly 600,000 Medicare members statewide, will collaborate with Walgreens (NYSE: WAG) (Nasdaq: WAG) during the upcoming Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP) - Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 - to staff nearly 100 Walgreens locations in Florida and more than 50 Walgreens, in Puerto Rico with Humana Medicare sales representatives.

"We're excited to work with Walgreens on this new Medicare enrollment initiative"

During this fall's Medicare enrollment period, Humana career sales agents will provide Florida and Puerto Rico beneficiaries with information on Medicare Advantage health plans and Prescription Drug Plans, including the Humana Enhanced Prescription Drug Plan.

The Humana Enhanced Prescription Drug Plan now includes Walgreens as part of its preferred pharmacy network, which offers more savings opportunities for Medicare beneficiaries who select the plan and use Walgreens pharmacies.

"We're excited to work with Walgreens on this new Medicare enrollment initiative," said Humana MarketPoint Regional Vice President Dariel Quintana. "At Humana, we're striving to meet our customers where they are and to make it more convenient for those looking for help in choosing the right Medicare prescription and health plans for their families. Walgreens brings greater convenience and access to help provide the information people need to help make informed decisions."

"With the Medicare population growing rapidly each day, more and more people age 65 and older - and disabled people - are seeking personalized care from our community pharmacists, and can benefit from having Walgreens as part of a preferred pharmacy network, which offers greater access to pharmacy services and cost savings on prescription drugs," said Charles Bernard, Walgreens Corporate Operations Vice President.

Humana Medicare sales agents will provide current and prospective Medicare beneficiaries at select Florida and Puerto Rico Walgreens with assistance in comparing the various Medicare Prescription Drug Plans Humana will be offering across Florida and Puerto Rico for 2013.
